The same thing started happening to my TL. I ended up getting two new keys from the dealer and it happens less frequently now. I've found that the "key" is to turn the key as gently as you can. When I was wiggling the key a lot to try to get it to turn, it wouldn't work. If I would gently turn the key, and do it slowly, it would turn just fine.
